Good stuff! I liked Nutt and enjoyed the whole riff on the idea of orcs (though the Discworld definition of an orc seems more like a Tolkienian Uruk-hai than Tolkienian orc). I didn't find it as sparky as the other Discworld books, though, and the pacing didn't seem as tight. Felt he could have done more with the Shove and/or the anthropomorphised mystical football force (still not sure if those two are the same things). Still, an enjoyable read.

Dormouse One of the bits I liked about this book was how Ankh-Morpork was coming together, there is more detail of it and more feel of it as a whole city than as a collection of buildings.
